Max Holloway Is The Best Boxer In The UFC…No Debate

I will get right to the point. Max Holloway is without a doubt the best boxer currently fighting in the UFC.  His combination of power, speed, timing, and accuracy is unmatched in today’s fight game.

Max Holloway By The Numbers

Max Holloway has long been known as an elite-level striker in the UFC, but his numbers prove further why he is the best in the game. Max Holloway has landed 45% of his significant strikes inside the UFC octagon, which is a little below average, but then you look at the volume of strikes Holloway has thrown throughout his career and you realize that his accuracy is actually insane. In his UFC career, Holloway has thrown 4607 significant strikes, landing 2071 of them. The fact that Holloway has thrown so many punches may lead you to believe his accuracy would be way down, but it is not. Max Holloway is also the all-time leader in significant strikes landed at 2618, leading the next closest fighter by nearly 1000 strikes.

Max “Blessed” Holloway vs. Calvin Kattar Tells The Tale Of Elite Striking

At the beginning of 2021, Max Holloway beat down Calvin Kattar in what was one of the greatest striking displays in UFC history. In 25 minutes of action, Holloway landed 447 strikes, landing at a 60% clip. Casual fans may not know that Kattar is not merely some bum that Dana White threw to the jaws of the greatest featherweight of all time, but Kattar was 6-2 in the UFC and ranked inside the top five of the division when he fought Holloway. Holloway broke nearly every significant strike record in the book in January, including breaking his own record for most strikes landed and thrown in a UFC fight.

Max Holloway’s unrelenting pressure and ridiculous precision make him easily the best boxer in the UFC today and quite possibly ever.
